Winter is in full swing, and along with it comes dry skin! While you may have amped up the hydration in your skincare routine, parched skin is not limited to the skin on your body but your lips too. In fact, the skin on your lips is the first place to show signs of dryness, which can lead to chapped lips or peeling skin. If you are facing this issue, check your kitchen cabinet ‘coz we’ve got a DIY that is sure to revive the skin on your lips. Unlike your regular chapstick, this lip mask adds moisture and protein to the skin while keeping it hydrated. Scroll down for deets!
Here’s what you need to get healthy lips when the temperature drops:
1/4 teaspoon yoghurt
1/4 teaspoon clay or baking soda
optional: lavender or rose hydrosol
What To Do:
Step 1: Mix the yoghurt with a bit of clay or baking soda and combine it with a pea-size amount of aloe or a spritz of lavender hydrosol. Mix all these ingredients well until the mixture turns into a paste.
Step 2: Once it is mixed thoroughly, apply a generous amount on your lips and let it sit for a while. 10 to 15 minutes should be good enough for this lip mask to work its magic.
Step 3: While you wait with the mask on, you can also go ahead and spritz lavender or rose hydrosol to lock in the nutrients and moisture and eliminate dryness.
Step 4: Since these ingredients are a bit strong, don’t be surprised if your lips feel a bit sensitive after applying the lip mask. If they do then simply spritz a bit of hydrosol and a bit of lip balm once the mask is removed and you’re good to go.
And that's it! This mask will help your lips stay soft and nourished throughout the chilly season.
